Using the correct Torx screwdriver remove the Torx screws holding the inner door panel to the outer panel. Two of these screws also hold down the latch. Have someone hold down the outer door panel, lift the inner panel slightly and pull the latch with 2 wires attached beyond the inner panel so the wires can be removed. You will need needlenose pliers to wiggle off the 2 wire connectors from the old latch. Note from which terminals the wires were removed. Connect the wires to the new latch and reassemble in reverse order being careful not to over tighten the screws.

after a couple of shocking moments with my dishwasher, I found that I couldn't detach the electrical wiring plugs from the exisitng broke unit, attached to the door to install the new. I ended up carefully removing the plug ins from the replacement part and and repeating the steps with the broke part, then attaching the old wiring to the new latch. Tada! It worked!

Probably from hanging on a tall item as the upper rack was pulled out. One of the retaining tabs was broken and the rotating arm would not stay in place.

We have a black dishwasher. The old black latch handle was broken, so I couldn't reuse it. But the only colors available for the new assembly were white and bisque. But the bisque handle isn't too objectionable.

Read the reviews before ordering the part, when it arrived I shut off the circuit breaker, took the screws out ( 11 ) lifted up the inner panel and placed a book between the panel and door which gave me an opening of about 3". which is all you need to remove the handle from the door, disconnected the two wire connectors, and installed the new handle, flipped the breaker and bingo, done. My wife was in the other room for about twelve minutes, when she came out I told her the dishwasher was fixed, she said no way. The part was priced well, delivery time was unbelieveable, 2 days, saved me a lot of money, I was thinking about buying a new dishwasher, glad I didn't. Thanks you guys. T.D. Tennessee
